You can come for just a coffee, or a beer, and wind up with some of the finest cooking Melbourne has to offer here in Cumulus Inc. Celebrating the historic turn of the century rag trade building in which it is located, the space is a busy social hub offering Andrew McConnellâ€™s acclaimed food.
The service is intuitive, thanks to a crack team of staff lead by Jaden Ong, who always allows the diner to dictate the pace. CUMULUS INC. is open throughout the day, whether it be for a coffee, snack, drink or a meal. Breakfast is done simply; organic muesli, or perhaps the full English, with farmhouse slab bacon and smoked tomato.
Lunch and dinner include dishes designed to share, charcuterie, oysters shucked to order, salads or a braise. From the lengthy charcuterie section, see McConnellâ€™s mastery of balance at work as he packs hot, sweet, smoky and fatty notes into paper thin slivers of smoked wagyu tongue garnished with naught but a few bitter leaves. Simple. Perfect.
